ADFREAK STRAPS ON NEW YORK DICK

Media and advertising critic Tim Nudd certainly knows that some ads can be a bit much, even dickish some might say. But after reading his report on a new ad campaign for Papercut that features posters pre-defaced with penises, friends of New York Dick asked if he would be interested in checking out a whole book of pecker on poster pictures and offering a few comments. 

We at NYD are very glad he agreed to take a peek. We're big fans of advertising mockery by penis but it's nice to see that the ad industry itself has a sense of humor (and some sympathy?) for our lewd additions to their outstanding product. Though there are some ups and downs, the dysfunctional relationship between ads and dick drawing consumers will continue as long as both partners joyfully take the other for idiots.
